Now when your client pays an invoice using the “Pay now” button you will receive a push-message, it will appear in the Notification center and the invoice will be marked as paid.
How long does it take to get paid
The 1st payout to your bank account is made 7 - 10 days after the first payment. This initial holding period is necessary for complying with anti-money laundering regulations and to reduce the risk of fraud. Make sure your business and bank details account in your Stripe account are correct.
After this 1st holding period, the time it takes to transfer the money to your bank account depends on where you’re located. In the United States and Australia, it typically takes up to 2 business days. For Canada, the UK or Ireland, it can take up to 7 business days.
The card payments are handled by Stripe and not Billdu. All processed or declined payments and deposits to your bank are handled exclusively by Stripe. If you do not see your funds in your bank account, please check your Stripe Dashboard for the current payment status or your Stripe settings.
